the achieve act. >> two retiring u.s. senators and a senate republican rising star, kay bailey hutchison of texas, jon kile from arizona, and florida's marco rubio for hutchison and kyle, they're leaving at the end of the year, so they'd love to push this across the finish line. this would give the children of illegal immigrants legal status with visas and if they do all the right things, eventually a shot at citizenship. but unlike the dream act, this doesn't allow the young people to jump ahead of those who would like to be legal immigrants. >> i think it strikes a balance because there is a concern, there is people who have been waiting in line for ten years and waiting to come into this country and so i think this strikes that balance. so now these children will be able to go to college. will be able to join the military and then after that, get a work visa for four years. >> republicans note president obama's executive action, the dream act, is only temporary and many think this could be the permanent fix. >> harris: mike, does this suggest that some republicans might be changing th
both of you. senator hutchison, you were the first woman elected to the senate from texas. you know a little bit about being a ground breaker. is this going to change the way things get done, what gets done? >> women in the senate have gotten very close. we are friends. we represent our states. we don't lobby each other on specific issues, but we do know how to come together to get something done. the women who are both the democrat and the republican who are chairs and ranking members of the appropriations committees, for instance, our bills are done because we make our deals, we work with the priorities that we have, and we go forward. i think having 20 will be amazing. we have 17 now. we had 9 when i came. >> nine, wow. so more than double. >> so we share personal stories. so we know each other personally, but it's working together, making things happen, but not ever compromising principles. >> senator lincoln, one of the first things i heard -- and maybe it's a stereotype -- but it's that women are better at compromise. they know how to get things done. do you think this is goin
. the authors of the bill met with senators mccain, chambliss, hutchison. the sponsors of the secure i.t. act as well as with senators kyl and whitehouse and a group they convened. we had multiple meetings with the chamber of commerce. the chamber's largest concern was over the liability protections in our information sharing language, which is what i had something to do with, and the intelligence staff worked on and prepared. i asked where they thought our language was deficient. i asked them if they could improve on the immunity provisions, please send us bill language. did they? no. they did not. i think that is some testimony that's worth thinking about it. the majority leader offered to vote on a set list of amendments. he asked if the minority would put together the ten votes it wanted. as long as they were relevant and germane to the bill. and we'd go through them. no list was provided. and so we voted by a vote of 52-46 and cloture was not invoked. again, after the vote, the staff from both sides of the homeland security committee, the commerce committee, the intelligence committee he

" this morning. it was an interview with hutchison who has been in congress a very long time and on her way out so perhaps she can speak a lot more freely than she might have otherwise. she was talking about in a very blunt fashion, how a couple of congressional candidates may have done some serious damage, particularly among women voters on their comments about rape. have a look. >> all right. >> i think we had republican candidates who got very high profile and said some very stupid things. >> aiken. >> uh-huh. i think that really tainted the party even though mitt romney came right out and said, this is not right, we disagree with this. the party leadership did the same thing. no one embraced todd aiken after he said those things, including the republican campaign committees. but yet it was used in the political sense against us and it was -- it was -- i think it's the feeling that republicans don't get it. >> so, wolf, here's my question. she's not the only one coming in with some -- the after-the-fact armchair quarterbacking, quarterbacking anyway. there are a lot of conservative wlos are
